Analysis: Younger audience a risk at Viacom

|About: Viacom Inc. (VIA)|By:, SA News Editor

Barclay analyst Kannan Venkateshwar's dour view on Viacom (VIA, VIAB) is based in part on the younger audience for the company's Nickelodean and MTV channels that is increasingly moving to digital platforms.

Venkateshwar also notes the increased level of buybacks at Viacom limit the flexibility of the company to invest in its core business.
